I got my navel pierced yesterday, and it's started to swell. I just want to make sure that it's not too tight. There's only a little bit of redness, but I don't know how much bar should be showing.

From what I see, everything is fine. The bar is a little long, but that's good at this point. Many piercings swell and without the extra length you could have serious problems. If you don't see any exposed bar later, see your piercer ASAP. Too long can be a problem if it catches on everything. After you fully heal (about 6 months) you can change your jewelry for a shorter bar.
